Hiking the Alps

The Alps are the biggest mountain range in Europe and offer vast possibilities for hiking and mountaineering of all sorts. The Alps stretch for 1200 kilometers through no less than 8 countries. In 2017 we will conduct several hiking trips in the Alps and regularly post detailed trail descriptions here. These trips will often be technically and physically challenging and thus mainly suitable for well-prepared hikers and mountaineers who have the appropriate equipment such as via ferrata set, climbing harness, climbing helmet etc.

Note: Map markers show starting points of trails!
